Our Instructors


Melanie Yocum

Studio Owner/Instructor/Wellness Coach/Certified Teacher and Healer in the Lineage of King Salomon with the Modern Mystery School, Int.

Owning a yoga studio is something Melanie had dreamed of since she earned her Yoga Teacher Training in 2007. Yoga gave her a reprieve from the heaviness of life, an opportunity to heal and to shine on others. As a recovered alcoholic, she understands the importance of having a self care practice that allows one to advance his/her spiritual practice (whatever that may be). "Yoga is a vehicle for change of body, mind, and spirit... a grand connector that allows us to come home to who we truly are -pure love, light, and peace. In a world that is overstressed where people are consumed by schedules and to-do lists, yoga is an opportunity to check in and tune in to what truly matters - the present moment. Because at the end of the day, that's all we truly have."

Melanie is excited to offer this space to everyone in the Wapakoneta and surrounding communities to come and find their own sense of connection, love, light, and presence.
